The motor is a 1940 Mercury flathead which was bored 60 over with a 4 inch stroked. The heads are Offenhauser with a Fenton intake. On top of the intake sits a pair of 97 Stromberg Carbs. A walker radiator keeps this hot rod cool in the summer. What gets this truck down the road is a 1986 4 speed transmission with a 4 gear overdrive.

Notes to mention:
This a turn the key go cruise in an era hot rod. The truck drives straight stops straight. No overheat issues and will do 65 mph easily. This is a proven driver which means it’s been on long trips.
With this said expect a driven hot rod that you could not build for the asking price / best offer. Expect a nick or a bug or two. This truck was built by a guy who’s built several cars and trucks along his 80 years. This is a 1 owner ride. I’m assisting in this sale, he is my neighbor. Serious buyers and or offers please. Located down my street in Lockport N.Y. 14094 Any questions I can put you in touch with him directly if I don’t have the answer.
